The quality of entries was good with the judges often struggling to decide between 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  Most classes had entries although it would be wonderful to see more entries to make the competition that bit more interesting and lively.

Visitors to the show not only had the entertainment of seeing the entries and pondering the judges’ decisions but also the opportunity to buy produce, plants, ice cream and see the wonderful willow sculptures of Victoria Westaway.

A number of trophys and cups were awarded at the end of the show.  Some for individual classes and some where the competitor had accumulated a sufficient number of points.  The trophies were awarded as follows:

The Committee would like to thank all those who helped, who entered the various classes and who came to support the Society.  We would love more of you to take part whether you are a member or not so please  do consider having a go in 2014.

I would like to thank Tim Wright for supplying the photographs with the exception of the four vegetable ones – he was a wonderful show photographer
